This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Paint the Town Blue: St. Louis wins first Cup in historic playoff season
  • Lightning Flash: Tampa Bay wins 62 in season, none in playoffs
  • Lamplighters: 13 score 40+ goals in highest-scoring year ever

Full Summary

The NHL had never seen anything like it. First, all four division winners and six of the nine 100-point teams did not survive the first round of the playoffs. Tampa Bay’s historically great regular season (NHL record-tying 62 wins, league-best 325 goals) ended with a historically disastrous playoff (first team in the 52-year expansion era to fail to win a playoff game after leading the NHL in points).

That unequalled misery set the stage for the season’s feel-good ending: The St. Louis Blues, a last-place team on Jan. 1, won its first Stanley Cup in its first finals appearance since 1970, the early days of expansion.

The regular season offered plenty of individual highlights:

  • Alex Ovechkin leads the NHL in goals (51) again, but only one more than Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl in a season that had the most goals in NHL history. Thirteen men scored at least 40 goals.
  • Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov won the Hart Trophy and the scoring title (41-87-128) above a group of six superstar 100-point men: Kucherov, Connor McDavid (116), Patrick Kane (110), Draisaitl (105), Brad Marchand (100) and Sidney Crosby (100).
  • Despite the flurry of goals, Dallas’ Ben Bishop’s .934 save percentage topped nine qualifiers with .922 or better.
  • Louis’ rookie goaltender, Jordan Binnington (.927 save percentage), led the NHL with a 1.89 goals-against-average, a bit better than Bishop’s 1.98, before starring in the Blues’ surge to the Cup.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 2011 Baseball Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Cardiac Cardinals: Classic comebacks capture NL crown, then World Series championship
  • Season of the Pitch: Verlander, Kershaw win pitching Triple Crowns in year of record Ks
  • Brains and Braun: Small-ball tactics, slugging MVP Ryan Braun lead offenses

Full Summary

Many called the final day of the 2011 season the most amazing pennant-race conclusions in baseball history. Atlanta and Boston suffered historic collapses. Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria joined Bobby Thomson of the 1951 Giants as the only players to hit walk-off home runs on the season’s final day to send their teams into the post-season. And St. Louis completed its climb from eight games back in September. Then, in Manager Tony LaRussa’s swan song, the Cardinals topped that by becoming the first team to twice survive elimination when it was down to its final strike in the World Series. This was a terrible Texas Two-Step for the Rangers, who twice stumbled in its second straight World Series dance.

The final fireworks followed an explosive season that showcased Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, Jim Thome’s 600thhome run, Matt Kemp’s near batting Triple Crown and the most spectacular pitching seen in decades. Detroit pitching ace Justin Verlander (24-8, 2.40, 250 Ks) was the American League MVP. He and Dodger Clayton Kershaw (21-5, 2.28, 248 Ks) won pitching Triple Crowns for leading their leagues in wins, ERA and strikeouts. Overall, runs, home runs and batting averages were at 20-year lows and strikeouts were at all-time highs. But 2011 had its share of tough outs: That Cardinals’ modern-day Murderer’s Row of Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and David Freese, for instance. NL MVP Ryan Braun (.332-33-11) and slugging teammate Prince Fielder led Milwaukee to a division title. Toronto’s Jose Bautista (43 HR) and the Yankees’ Curtis Granderson (41) blasted away. Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera (.344) and the Mets’ Jose Reyes (.337) won batting crowns. Boston had batting title runner-up Adrian Gonzalez (.344) and MVP runner-up Jacoby Ellsbury (.321-32-105).

Strat Description:

Highlights

  • Mahomes, Chiefs outscore SF in Super Bowl
  • Lamar Jackson races to MVP award, leads Ravens to 14-2 record
  • Derrick Henry’s 1,540 yards carry Tennessee to AFC title game

Full Summary

The Individual Defensive Squares are no longer included with the purchase of a game or card set. This must be purchased separately.

In a season when seven teams won at least 11 games, the top-scoring team from each conference met in the Super Bowl. Playing in their first Super Bowl since 1969, when the Chiefs won in the last season of their American Football League, Patrick Mahomes passed for two fourth-quarter TDs to erase a 20-10 deficit.

The Baltimore Ravens flashed the NFL’s best record (14-2) thanks to flashy MVP QB Lamar Jackson, who combined explosive designed runs and scrambles (1,206 yards rushing, 6.9 avg) with a league-best 36 TD passes against just 6 interceptions.

Green Bay, with QB Aaron Rodgers (26 TD passes, 4 interceptions) and 19-TD RB Aaron Jones, also won 13 games, as did New Orleans, where QB Drew Brees (74.3% completions, 27 TD passes), RB Alvin Kamara (4.7 rush avg and 97 receptions) and WR Michael Thomas (149 catches), lead a team that scored 30+ points 11 times.

Tennessee RB Derrick Henry also emerged as a superstar, leading the NFL with 1,540 rush yards and tying Jones for the league lead with 16 rushing TDs. The Titans’ Ryan Tannehill led all QBs with a 117.3 passer rating.

Note* Strat O Matic has inserted information on the ability to rob Home Runs in its ballpark info sheet.  This information is included on these labels where the “Homerun” reading is.  The asterisk is located on the appropriate side of “Homerun” to reflect the weather and ballpark effect charts.  As per the chart:

* Robbing HR Rule (14.5) – An * to the left of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a lefty batter. An * to the right of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a righty batter. Note, this applies to all HR/Flyout splits, not just ballpark home run chances

Strat’s Description:

HighlightsNationals Treasure: First World Series title in franchise history without a home victory

Home Run Derby: Rookie Alonso, Twins lead sluggers who shatter HR record

Pair of Aces: Astros Verlander, Cole win 20, fan 300+, 1-2 in AL ERA

Full Summary

The Washington Nationals, who did not even win their own division, won the World Series for the first time in franchise history dating to the 1969 Montreal Expos and did it in the first World Series when every game was won by the visiting team. In this ripe-for-replaying season like no other, most teams had a slugger or a group of sluggers who set franchise or Major-League records. After all, the 30 teams combined for the most home runs in history – 671 more than the prior record!

Only one man – the Mets’ Pete Alonso, who set the rookie record with 53 HR – but a record 28 men hit 35 and a record 43 hit 30. The Minnesota Twins set the all-time mark with 307 HR with a record eight men who hit at least 20. The Yankees hit 306, with a record 14 men reaching double-figure HR. Arizona and Philadelphia combined for a record 13 HR in one game. In one June week, two teams hit four consecutive HR, two pitchers gave up five in a game and two men hit for the cycle. That same week, Colorado’s Charlie Blackman had a record 15 hits for a four-game series, in which the Rockies and Padres set a record with 92 runs.

Though no pitcher was safe, many had remarkable seasons, especially while striking out a record number of batters – more strikeouts, in fact, than hits allowed. Cy Young winners Justin Verlander and Houston’s Gerrit Cole were the only 20-game winners, only the second pair of teammates to strike out 300 and were 1-2 in American League ERA. They, teammate Zack Greinke, St. Louis’s Jack Flaherty and the Mets’ Jacob DeGrom had WHIPS below 1.00, with nine other starters below 1.10.

A glittering rookie class that included Alonso, Fernando Tatis Jr., Yordan Alvarez, Keston Hiura, Victor Robles, Eloy Jimenez and pitchers Mike Soroka, Dakota Hudson, Chris Paddack and many more made big first impressions.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 1968 Strat O Matic Cards

Strat’s Description:

  • Highlights

    • Tiger Tales: Detroit, down 3 games to 1, stuns Cardinals to win World Series
    • Year of the Pitcher: Denny McLain last to win 30 (31-6); Bob Gibson’s 1.12 ERA
    • Batting Titles: Pete Rose: .335; Carl Yastrzemski: .301 (American League: .230)

    Full SummaryEnhanced with super-advanced features, the 1968 Major League season is re-created in time for the 50thanniversary of The Year of the Pitcher. In this memorable season, Detroit’s Denny McLain was the last to win 30 games (31-6, 1.96). Bob Gibson registered a miniscule 1.12 ERA in a year when seven qualifying pitchers had sub-2.00 ERAs. Nine of the top 20 men in Wins Above Replacement were starting pitchers, including Hall of Famers Gibson, Tom Seaver and Ferguson Jenkins. Gibson and McLain were the league MVPs.

    Maybe the most sensational pitching feat of all occurred in Game 7 of the World Series when Detroit’s Mickey Lolich, pitching on two day’s rest, threw a complete-game five-hitter to out-duel the mighty Gibson (winner of Game 7s in 1964 and 1967). That made Lolich 3-0 for the Series, which St. Louis once led three games to one.

    The American League hit a paltry .230 and Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski won the batting title at .301. After the season, MLB lowered all pitching mounds. But the Tigers had LF Willie Horton (.285-36-85, .895 OPS). Catcher Bill Freehan and 1B Norm Cash each hit 25 HR with more than 800 OPS. Hall of Famer Al Kaline, in his only World Series, had an .820 OPS. Pinch-hitter Gates Brown hit .370 with an 1.127 OPS in 92 AB.

    In the NL, Pete Rose led with a .335 average, Willie McCovey led with 36 HR, 105 RBI, .545 slugging and .923 OPS. The list of top sluggers is filled with legends: Richie Allen, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Hank Aaron, Ron Santo, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell, Jimmy Wynn.
